Janine Berger is a German gymnast. In 2012 she competed as a senior elite gymnast for the first time. She competed for the national team at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the Women's artistic team all-around.

Career

2012 Olympics

She qualified for the vault final in sixth place. On the day of the final, Janine performed two difficult vaults: a rudi (handspring 1.5 twisting layout) and a double twisting Tsukahara, with difficulty ratings of 6.3 and 6.0 respectively. Her first vault, the Rudi, had very impressive height and amplitude but excessive piking of the hips in the final phase led to an uncontrolled landing. Janine finished the vault final in 4th behind Russia's Maria Paseka.

2013

In March, Berger competed at the La Roche-sur-Yon World Cup. In qualifications, she injured herself on vault and was not able to continue. She recovered in time to compete at the Anadia World Cup in Portugal, where she placed fifth on vault. In September, she placed 23rd in the all-around and fourth on vault.

In September, Berger posted a picture of her ankle in a cast on her Instagram, putting her out of Worlds contention. However, she recovered in time to be named to one of the German teams for the Stuttgart World Cup in November.[1] Unfortunately, her team did not qualify to the Team Challenge.

2014

Berger started off 2014 by winning the vault title at the Cottbus World Cup in March. In April, she competed at a friendly meet against gymnasts from Great Britain and Spain, winning team silver. She was named to the German team for the European Championships in May, where she placed fourth with her team and fifth on vault. At the German Nationals in August, she placed fifth in the all-around but fell in the vault finals attempting a double-twisting Tsukahara, and tore her ACL.[2]
